Vaser Liposuction

Vaser Liposuction Overview

Every body is different. Sometimes, even rigorous diet and exercise won’t help remove unwanted fat. Vaser Liposuction offers a safe way to eliminate unwanted fat, leaving you with a shape you’ll love. Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasonic energy to break apart fat deposits. The procedure can help with small or large problem areas, depending on your needs.

Vaser stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance” and uses ultrasonic energy to target and remove unwanted fat while preserving the surrounding tissues, including nerves, connective tissue and blood vessels. This helps create beautiful results, with less downtime.

Having Realistic Expectations for Vaser Liposuction

Having realistic expectations about how your body will change and how those changes will affect your life is important. Disappointment may happen, especially if you believe surgery will fix your life problems, save your marriage or cure depression. Having Vaser Liposuction surgery will result in a contoured body. Having a more youthful figure may boost your self-confidence, but it won’t change who you are or the way other people feel about you.

Questions to Ask Your Prospective Surgeon

Once you’ve made an appointment for a consultation, take the time to prepare a list of questions and concerns you want to address with your prospective surgeon. The consultation is your opportunity to assess the surgeon as much as it is their opportunity to determine your candidacy for the procedure. Take your time, be thorough and know that you are never required to commit to a procedure or a surgeon because you’ve had a consultation, even if the consultation is free.

Your procedure will depend on the amount of fat removal necessary to achieve your desired results. You want to make sure that you choose a surgeon whose work you admire, and who listens closely to your desired goals. You will be able to see the outcome of some of their surgeries by looking at before-and-after pictures. Have the surgeon explain their procedure and why they value a certain technique more than others.

Make sure to speak to the anesthesiologist before you schedule a surgery, and inform them of any allergies or reactions you have to any medications. Make sure to tell both your surgeon and the anesthesiologist if you have any pre-existing medical conditions.

This list of information may help you compile your questions and may encourage you to do some further research on the many different aspects of Vaser Liposuction surgery:

Most importantly, always trust your instincts during the consultation. The success of your surgical experience will be based on how you feel about the surgeon, the surgery, your recovery and your result

Vaser Liposuction Recovery

Compared to traditional liposuction, the ultrasound technology used in Vaser Liposuction decreases post-operative pain. During the procedure, fluid is injected to the site of the treatment. To shrink blood vessels and expand the treatment area. This prevents trauma to surrounding tissue and reduces bleeding under the skin.

Recovery time for Vaser Liposuction is usually 3-4 weeks, and depends on the amount of fat removed, how many areas the fat was removed from and how quickly your body heals. Most patients have been able to return to work within 2 weeks of surgery.

Vaser Liposuction Risks

Any surgical procedure carries certain risks and the possibility of complications, infection, and adverse reaction to the anesthesia.

During your consultation, you will want to ask your surgeon about the following risks from Vaser Liposuction:

  • Are there similar risks involved as compared to traditional liposuction?
  • What would happen if too much fluid is applied during the procedure?
  • What is the risk of blood clots during surgery?

It is important to remember that no surgeon can guarantee your satisfaction with Vaser Liposuction nor can they deny any risk factors. No matter how rarely risks occur, every surgery carries a certain amount of risk, and you have to decide for yourself if your potential desired result is worth the risk.

Long Term Results of Vaser Liposuction

You will begin to see a change in your shape as early as two weeks after your procedure. You may not see the final result until six months after your Vaser Liposuction surgery. Since fat cells do not reproduce in the human body, removal of fat cells is permanent. Because remaining fat cells will continue to expand, weight gain in other areas of the body is still possible without proper diet and exercise.
